McGill Rose Garden Wedding : Charlotte, NC | Daniel & Sara

charlottencweddingphotographer-4402-2

Meet Daniel & Sara. I had the pleasure of capturing their sweet backyard wedding at McGill Rose Garden in Charlotte, NC. Unfortunately, the rain had plans of its own, but that didn’t ruin the fun or beauty of the day. The rain has a way of bringing out the vibrance of color in the trees and flowers that the sunshine just can’t do, so it always makes for beautiful photos. Daniel & Sara didn’t allow the rain to ruin their excitement for marrying their best friend that day. By far one of the most relaxed couples I have ever worked with. Thank you both for trusting me with your photos. Enjoy a sneak peek into Daniel & Sara’s wedding!

Southern Wedding with Vintage Charm : Charlotte NC Wedding Photographer | Rock Hill, SC

styledweddingshoot-1-100

Today’s blog post is a Southern styled wedding shoot I photographed earlier this year. The planner & designer for this shoot (Ashley with Magnolia Events) was inspired by photographs of her grandmother’s wedding day, which are displayed in her office. “Looking at these photos made me wonder what my grandmother’s wedding might look like today,” she said.

As you can see below, this elegant southern wedding shoot was a perfect balance of classic-southern with a contemporary, romantic flair. In the South, there are so many special details that can be incorporated into a wedding, and many of them translate through generations. The shoot took place at a Southern estate – Hutchison Estate at Arrowhead Dairy Farm – and the design incorporated many traditions of the South, including a Bible bouquet, vintage tins which served as flower vases, toile, homemade moon pies, bottled Coca-Cola, cake pulls, lace and silhouettes. Lush with vibrant flowers, this design is perfect for any bride who wants to have a charming southern wedding with a contemporary twist.

I absolutely loved this team of vendors and am thrilled with the way everything turned out. Find all vendor information and web links at the bottom of this post. Enjoy a peek!
